  1. The SGR team are beyond reproach when it come to service and enthusiasm. Cannot go wrong dealing with these guys. [emoji108]
  2. Have no idea about the others but Ghosteen is a beautiful album. I've put that aside for Black Friday. Cheers M
  3. Item: Marantz SC 11s1 Preamplifier Location: Melbourne/ Gippsland Price: $1500 Item Condition: Perfect Reason for selling: Trying something different Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is a beautiful looking and sounding preamp. Has been faultless since buying it from another SNA member 3 years ago. It is in pristine condition and has been well looked after. This was from their premium range and from memory retailed for around $5-6k. Heavily built and featuring a very nice phono stage and remote control. Heres a link to some specs. SC11s1 specs I don't have the box for this so postage is out of the question as it is very heavy and would be a nightmare to ship, sorry. As usual, I apologise for the average pics. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  4. Got stock of that in the other day. 👍
  5. That will be a beautiful solution. Stop all light leakage. That will change the game. Well done mate. M
  6. It’s on again this weekend. 20% off music. CD and Vinyl. This is the first of what should be a trilogy of sales on music. Should happen again on Black Friday and then Boxing Day. Giddy-up!! Cheers, M
  7. Yeah but with something other than the black socks, they were acceptable looking. I sort of like that monolithic look... and sound. 👍🏻
  8. No prize sadly but good guess. They do deliver the goods and then some. I have plans to pretty then up somewhat. 👍
  9. Thanks mate. Strictly speaking though, you will have pair #1. Mine are forever the prototypes. Really looking forward to the impacts of room treatment on the sound of these. Let me know next time you’re in town to visit Paul and John. I’ll swing by. Cheers. M
  10. Thanks mate, I can just imagine. When I got my first pair of CPs, the Sovereigns immediately became my aspirational speaker but when I heard the Lenards everything changed. Are they “HiFi”? I don’t know, nor do I care. They are simply a well engineered, superb sounding speaker. Very friggin happy! M
  11. So we have me wanting to hear the Sovs and you wanting to hear the Protos. Like a Mexican standoff. After @Los comes over with some treatment magic, we’ll organise a little GTG. Lots of Kate Bush will be played 🤘
  12. They are big but I a different way to the Duntechs which were so much taller. These are just fat blokes in a room. 😂😂. Looking forward to playing with some treatments. M
  13. Ive finally taken some pics of the new beasts. Once again I find myself with an Aussie product that delivers so much. These are a prototype of the speakers being built for our SNA friend @mondie. Those units will sport a very high end finish with very high end drivers and will be, if these are anything to go by, incredible. For me, that route is way above my pay grade so I was very fortunate to be able to snare these early prototypes with far more modest a driver compliment and with (as they are now) the most basic finish. My first experience with these made me rethink the whole HiFi thing and what it was I was looking for. They have majestic power capabilities with detail to spare. There is never a hint of strain even at volume levels that can only be described as ridiculous. John Burnett is the man behind the design and he has produced something special indeed. The finish will change in time with a new baffle and relocated amplification but for now, I am enjoying being taken to the next level They aren't pretty (yet) but the sound they produce has a beauty all its own. The next step (apart from some cosmetic and electronic finishes) will be room treatment and thats where Lenard Audio via @Los will have a huge input in order to extract the prodigious potential these Proto-Symphonys have in my little room. The pictures are pretty ordinary but they give you a sense of how these fit in the room. Cheers, M
